As we are finishing up our GDPR module, I would like to point out that we do have a solution already that will make most sites GDPR compliant.
Setting Cookiebot up
Once you install the module, you will need to go to the Cookiebot site and register. Once you sign up for an account, you should see a screen like the one below.
Cookiebot will send you a registration key by email, you will need to enter that key here. Then you can start setting Cookiebot up. The module will ask you for your Domain Group ID. This is somewhat hidden in the Cookiebot interface. What you will want to do, is go to the scripts tab. The code you will need to enter for the module is at the top of the scripts tab.
The code is all you will need to enter, the scripts area is handled by the module already. Once you get everything with Cookiebot filled out, you can test the module on your site. If you have entered everything correctly you should see a popup like below on your site.
You should be all done if you can see the popup. Now your site is GDPR compliant. The module will handle everything your site needs from the cookie aspect of GDPR compliancy. This module is not to replace our more feature packed GDPR compliance module which we are hoping to release soon, we just know we needed to release something to help shop owners out currently.
If you have modules or 3rd party scripts on your site and you need them to operate with the Cookiebot module, you can just add one line of code to the script tag and the modules or scripts will be compliant. The line of code you need to add will be in the script tag and should make your script tag look like this.
<script type="text/plain" data-cookieconsent="statistics">
Note the category at the end of the code, you will need to add what category that the script is in. We have made most thirty bees modules compatible with Cookiebot now, so they will work with the module, and help you maintain your GDPR compliance.
